El Silencio Lodge & Spa

El Silencio Lodge & Spa is a unique retreat, ideal for all who seek respite from everyday stress. Designed by one of Costa Rica’s most prominent architects, Ronald Zurcher, El Silencio provides a seamless natural immersion experience that reflects elements of Costa Rica’s traditional rural farms and countryside homes. The clean lines and the extensive use of wood, bamboo, and glass elements perfectly complement the lush tropical cloud forest. The main building faces the base of a tree-lined canyon, embracing nature at its most whimsical. It houses the restaurant, coffee lounge, media room, reception office, and gift shop and features a large outdoor deck area and fire pit.

Top-tier personal care products by Aromas para el Alma have been selected for their body nourishing and eco-friendly qualities. The king-sized bed is outfitted with luxurious sheets and a cloud-top mattress for the most regenerative sleeping experience in Costa Rica.
